Drove down to the parking area. Lake level is up. Able to get some great surf casting practice in. No fish but did… [read more]

    By / June 27, 2017 / Fishing

    Reader sent in a question related to our recent trip to Galveston. Had a question on the reel we were using on one of our surf casting rods – specifically, the “black and gold one”. We were using a Penn Squall 15 Reel. It was mounted on a Rodsmith 10′ Rod (Triton Series); we normally… [read more]

  • Surfcasting without the Surf…!

    By / May 18, 2016 / Lake Lavon, White Bass

    Dusted off the surfcasting gear and headed to the point at Brockdale Park on Lavon. Tried the Sabiki Flies and hooked up with White Bass. But, lost the rig to a snag. Will have to tie more! Switched to Crappie Jigs, Tube Jigs, and various fishing flies. Caught more on them; lost count after 20. Fish… [read more]

  • Frito Fishing Fly Worked at Brockdale, Too

    By / August 6, 2015 / Lake Lavon, White Bass

    Short video this round; shows the action we had at Brockdale Park this evening. Late start and then a dirty lens made us opt for editing out the onesie/twosie hook ups and show mainly the three and four fish hook ups. The Frito Fishing Fly worked well with lots of hook ups and like yesterday,… [read more]

  • Tickey Creek This Round… Frito Fishing Fly Worked!

    By / August 6, 2015 / Lake Lavon, White Bass

    Below is the follow-on video of the action from yesterday when we fished Tickey Creek! Really liking the simple fishing flies that work great on the Sabiki Rig for White Bass! Calling them Frito Fishing Flies for now since we made them from a Frito Bag that a certain unnamed individual finished without sharing! Going to tie… [read more]

    To kickoff the three-day weekend, we start off with fishing Celebration Park’s East Pond.

As it turned out, had many… [read more]

  • Lake Lavon This Morning

    By / June 13, 2015 / Fishing

    Planned to fish Denison Dam this morning but with rain in the forecast, decided to fish Lake Lavon this morning. Action was slow but steady with several Catfish caught on Nightcrawlers and more caught using Beef Liver. For some reason, the local grocery stores were out of fresh (never frozen) Chicken Livers. Also, did see… [read more]

    Only one White Bass this round at Brockdale Park. Caught it using the Daiwa Sealine Surf Casting Rod and Penn Squall 15 Reel. It struck a multi-rigged Marabou Fishing Fly that simulated a school of bait fish (at least a school of three that is). Did have some fun sight casting to two schools of… [read more]

    Headed to Brockdale Park after work this evening. More casting practice with the Daiwa Sealine Surf Casting Rod and Penn Squall 15 Reel. No bites for a while and then caught two White Bass using a White Tube Fly. Wind was up, so it was difficult to see rising schools. Mainly blind casted. Next step…… [read more]
